I loved the scene in the movie Apollo 13 when they need a quick calculation and all of the engineers take out their slide-rules. Sending people to the moon before we had pocket calculators seems so backwards.

  Like the tragic assassinations that took place in the 60's this is another event where I remember exactly where I was watching it on the tube.
